In a scene straight out of some assistant’s worst nightmare or secret fanfic, Anna Wintour and Marc Jacobs wore the same coat to a Thursday night screening of The Great Gatsby.
Though someone arriving at an event in the same outfit as Anna Wintour is traditionally heralded as one of the signs of the apocalypse, New York was spared a rain of frogs and the rivers did not turn to blood. Wintour did not even turn Jacobs into a pillar of ash with her stare. In fact, they actually seemed to think it was great fun and let Teen Vogue editor Amy Astley record the moment on Instagram while they chatted chummily.
“Great minds think alike. #annawintour @marcjacobsintl wearing @prada tonight #thegreatgatsby screening. Double good!” Astley tweeted.
The coat so nice Jacobs and Wintour both decided to wear it last night was a fur coat from Prada‘s spring/summer 2013 collection that’s covered in daisies. Considering that Daisy is the female lead in The Great Gatsby and Miuccia Prada‘s hand is all over her costumes, we can definitely see how two people would independently come up with the idea that it was clever to watch it while wearing daisy-festooned Prada.
Is it possible that Anna Wintour and Marc Jacobs are just completely adorable and decided to be Prada twinsies on purpose?
The coat was a repeat for Wintour, who also wore it to the Chanel autumn/winter 2013 show during Paris Fashion Week. Jacobs wore the coat with jeans, sneakers, and what appear to be matching daisy-print socks. Wintour wore hers with tasteful heels and a dress that might also have daisies on it.
